What are your thoughts on compression tights? Do you use them? How do they help you?

I've run 9K into work a couple of times this week and have used support bandages on my calves afterwards. My feeling is that they have helped my recovery (I've never been able to run into work twice in a week before because DOMS). I'm going to get some compression tights (and wear shorts over them).

I just realized I just missed my 2 year run-iversary! I've been doing this for 2 years! Who would have thought (certainly not me!)? 4/25/13 was my very first run, I couldn't even finish the 60 second intervals and now I'm running 3.5 -4 miles!

Week 8 done, now on to the longer distance portions of the 10k trainer. 5 weeks left!

The best part of today's run was zero shin pain. Used a foam roller for the first time. Amazing difference

That's great! I'm still running but I haven't felt the desire to go past 3.5 miles. Maybe because I don't have enough time in the morning. LOL

Another 1.62 miles this morning. My legs are looking forward to having the weekend off. Calves and shins hurt today!

What's everyone else doing  today?

Or according to google I can use a rolling pin! I'll try that since I already have one.

How many miles did everyone run in March 2015?

I only started the 24th but was able to get 7.38 miles. Crazy how quickly they add up.

Last week I started the Couch to 5K program again. I took some time off last year. Life really got crazy and not so good. So I'm trying to claw my way back one morning run at a time! I'm the opposite of a morning person so each time is a major achievement. LOL

Trying to use some online forums for accountability and they just don't seem very beginner friendly. My tolerance for snark is a bit low at the moment! :P

Hoping this community will work better for my accountability needs!

Good Father/son time. He did well, I'm hoping this will help him get bit with the running bug and start using C25K app

Not a bad run. The best part was running with my oldest son and encouraging him along the way.

Last run before my first 5K of 2015! The new ASICS Gel Nimbus 17's were awesome. 12:27 pace is an improvement for me. And to think a year ago I could barely run for 90 seconds.

First pre-dawn run! 35°, no wind, great run. Glad it's finally warming up, wish I could have waited til this afternoon, supposed to be near 60. But I'll take 35, beats 0 and below any day. 4 days til first 5K of 2015!
